The newly revamped Beacons has unveiled its first wave of events for this autumn’s festival. Taking place in venues across Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool, the initial lineup includes Mac DeMarco, Titus Andronicus, East India Youth and Ex Hex. Check out the full listings below.
Events in Leeds will be hosted at new venue Headrow House, a former textile mill with multiple floors for plenty of gig space. Local powerhouses Hookworms play a special show at the venue with producer Richard Formby (Wild Beasts, Darkstar, Ghostpoet) as part of Recon Festival.
Launching in 2011, the annual Beacons Festival previously resided in Skipton, North Yorkshire. Earlier this year, the group announced that the festival will be relocating to the city and re-branded as Beacons Metro to deliver a 12-week series of events across the north of England.
